Description

The second Indian Edition of Introduction to Theoretical and Computational Fluid Dynamics discusses the fundamental principles and equations governing the motion of incompressible Newtonian fluids and simultaneously introduces analytical and numerical methods for solving a broad range of pertinent problems. Topics covered include kinematics, elements of differential geometry of lines and surfaces, vortex dynamics, properties and computation of interfacial shapes in hydrostatics, exact solutions, flow at low Reynolds numbers, interfacial flows, hydrodynamic stability and many more. The book includes both classical and original topics and derivations accompanied by solved and unsolved problems that illustrate the theoretical results and explain the implementation of the numerical methods. Detailed appendices provide a wealth of supplementary information and establish the necessary mathematical and numerical framework. A unique and comprehensive synthesis of the essential aspects of the discipline, this volume serves as an ideal text for graduate courses on theoretical and computational fluid dynamics, applied mathematics and scientific computing. It will prove to be an indispensable resource for professionals and researchers in various fields of science, chemical, mechanical, biomechanical, civil and aerospace engineering.
